Kc Royal Flash charged home to win a frantic finish in the $110,000 Challenger Six Handicap at Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino on Saturday.

Dismissed as a 10-1 long shot, the John Augustine Stakes winner from Albuquerque had saved up a powerful effort for the 870 yard feature written for New Mexico-breds. Under a bold ride from Tony Guymon, Kc Royal Flash unleashed a sling shot move from sixth place in upper stretch to overwhelm his front running opponents. The capable sorrel gelding by Sixes Royal found an opening after racing four-wide around the turn. Kc Royal Flush had all the momentum in the final 100 yards and defeated Bullets Brother by a neck at the wire. The winner returned a generous $22 on a $2 win ticket.

Trained by Dominic Duree, Kc Royal Flush capped off a terrific year by scoring his second stakes win at 870 yards. The four-year-old has developed a terrific closing style and is one of the leaders in this division. He stopped the clock in 45.352 seconds and took home a $66,000 paycheck for winning owners Kathryn Maynard and Carla Feerer of Thoreau, New Mexico. Overall, the consistent hitter has 5 wins, 8 seconds and 6 thirds from 28 career tries. His bankroll is nearing the $200,000 plateau.

2-1 second favorite Bullets Brother looked like a winner in deep stretch. The New Mexico Cup 870 yard Championship winner had put away a stubborn Corona Dream after a stretch long battle, but he had no answers for the fast charging winner. Well ridden by Vicente Grajeda, the runner-up performed gamely after starting in the number eight position. The blue roan gelding earned $24,200 for owners Martin Orona, Sr. and Veronica Gonzalez. The multiple stakes winner holds a career bankroll worth more than $437,000.

Corona Dream finished one and one-quarter lengths back in third. Brt Opulence, the post time favorite, closed in the late stages to earn fourth place, a nose behind Corona Dream. The 2-1 shot completed a healthy $1 superfecta worth $1,690.00.

Live racing resumes on Sunday at 12:25 p.m. The $110,000 Lou Wooten Handicap starring defending champion Jenuine Joy is the 5th race at 400 yards. The $110,000 Enchantress Stakes at one mile is the co-featured 10th race.

Live racing will happen on Tuesday through Friday of next week. There will be racing on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (Dec 20-23). Post time each day is 12:25 p.m. There will be no live racing on Saturday, Dec. 24 (Christmas Eve) or Sunday, Dec. 25 (Christmas Day).
